At 5:17 p.m. on Saturday, November 24, 2012, the Heartland Communications Center received an urgent 911 call reporting a mobile home on fire at Gray Buckner's Mobile Home Lodge located at 12030 Woodside Ave. A first alarm structure response was dispatched within one minute.
Flames spread quickly throughout the rear of the mobile home.

The first fire unit was on scene less than four minutes later. Lakeside Engine 1 (Riverview fire station) arrived to report a working fire with flames and heavy smoke coming from the rear of a single wide mobile home. As additional units arrived minutes later, an aggressive attack was made on the fire. Lakeside Battalion 4106 (Kirkpatrick) took over Incident Command(IC) from Engine 1.
Interior fire attack was initiated through the front door.

 Knock down of the flames was reported by the interior fire crews at 5:39 p.m. The blaze was confined to one mobile home with no damaged to neighboring homes. Fire units assisting in the firefight included Engine 1, Engine 2, Medic 2, Engine 3, Division 4106, Support 4140 and 4141 (Lakeside); Engine 4, Truck 4, and Rescue 5 (Santee).
Overhaul plans being discussed by the IC.

  1. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to all of the firefighters who arrived on scene to help extinguish the fire. The house that caught fire was my dad & step mothers house. Although this was an unfortunate thing that happened, I'm so grateful that my dad is safe.

    Thank you for your service and bravery!
